From retro red nails to bombshell-worthy volume, ELLE presents the reinvented classics you'll fall for this season
The Look: Wine shades "infuse fantasy into a look," says makeup artist Pat McGrath, who at Dior had editors cooing over her revamp of summer's ubiquitous red lip.
Seen At: Dior, Luca Luca, Missoni, Peter Som, Proenza Schouler
DIY: Work with your coloring: Fairer beauties should try a purplish shade; those with darker skin tones, a warmer, reddish-black.
Try With: Taupe lids. At Proenza Schouler, M.A.C makeup artist Diane Kendal used a brown shadow along the lash line.
Get The Look: Estée Lauder Pure Color lipstick in Midnight Bloom; Dior Rouge Dior lipstick in Daisy Plum; L'Oréal Paris HIP Crystal Shadow in Darling
The Look: Hipsters can't get enough of greige, but the runways love red. "Red is feminine, so it's a nice counterpoint to the androgynous styles," says OPI artistic director Suzi Weiss-Fischmann.
Seen At: Dior, DSquared2, Giorgio Armani, Lagerfeld
DIY: Warm reds can seem summery, so stick with cool crimsons (those with blue undertones).
Try With: A half-moon manicure. Use a white nail polish pen to mirror the natural shape of your nail bed on top of a red base, then finish with a topcoat.
Get The Look: Sally Hansen Nail Art Pen in White; Revlon Nail Enamel in Revlon Red; OPI Nail Lacquers in Color So Hot It Berns and Alpine Snow.
SEVERE SIDE PART
The Look: Part placement speaks volumes: Center parts say "hippie chic," while a side part "makes any hairstyle look more elegant," says Eugene Souleiman, Wella Professional's global creative director.
Seen At: Alexander Wang, Calvin Klein, Céline, DKNY
DIY: Everyone's nose subtly points to one side-even a supermodel's. Fake symmetry by parting hair on the opposite side the nose points.
Try With: A sleek, low ponytail, which takes seconds to create. It's this season's easiest evening option.
Get The Look: Blax Snag-free Hair Elastics; Shu Uemura Round Brush; Redken Glass 01 Smoothing Serum; Wella Salon Professional Volumagic
The Look: At Donna Karan, Souleiman gave a nod to mod with shiny black headbands placed low over the hairline.
Seen At: Donna Karan, Lagerfeld, Prada
DIY: Although Souleiman bought his bands in Paris five years ago, Scünci's one-inch black headbands are a chic substitute.
Try With: High-shine red lips. Tilbury replicated the patent leather shine of the band by layering crimson at Donna Karan: a base of pencil, followed with cherry-red lipstick finished with gloss.
Get The Look: Lancôme Le Lipstique pencil in Rougelle; M.A.C Cosmetics Lipglass; Chanel Rouge Allure Luminous Satin Lip Colour in Expressive; Guerlain KissKiss Gloss in Poppy Star
